    I may be misunderstanding but....

    To receive HDTV i need
    Dish probably 60cm +
    (pointing at ASTRA 1 @ present)
    Satellite receiver(*)
    and screen that could ideally recieve 1080i

    *what sky recievers available in the UK output 1080i and is it done on component cables
    if these sky receivers don't exist would a US import box do this?
    (and would it work in UK for standard sat aswell)

    As well as the Zinwell mentioned above , Integra (Korea) promise one in the summer. The IT912S as sold in the USA will work (but no CAM for Irdeto).

    A few German websites mention a box called the "Smart Imperator" but I have never been anle to find out much about its origin.

    A subscription will be necessary for the Irdeto stuff.

    GROBI , D-41564 Kaarst, Germany.

    Email : info@grobi.tv

    FAX : +49 2131 769411 (no voice phone number listed).

    Cheers Chris, will there be a constant FTV feed? As the 1080 website is a bit confusing! I know official launch isnt until March but details seem very sketchy and there is a Big sat show soon!

    Nobody knows whether there'll be a constant FTV/FTA feed .
    Euro1080 probably haven't 100% decided themselves yet!
